. in december 2011, steve kroft reported on two such cases. we begin with a woman named eileen foster, a former senior executive at countrywide financial, one of the epicenters of the crisis. >> do you believe that there are people at countrywide who belong behind bars? >> yes. >> do you want to give me their names? >> no. >> would you give their names to a grand jury if you were asked? >> yes. >> but eileen foster has never been asked, and never spoken to the justice department, even though she was countrywide's executive vice president in charge of fraud investigations. at the height of the housing bubble, countrywide financial was the largest mortgage lender in the country, and the loans it made were among the worst, a third ending up in foreclosure or default, many because of mortgage fraud. it was foster's job to monitor and investigate allegations of fraud against countrywide employees and make sure they were reported to the board of directors and the treasury department. >> how much fraud was there at countrywide? >> from what i saw, the types of things i saw, it was-- it appeared system

brand of the republican party. >> steve, georgette was prepared to put up with anything, as long as you could keep her tax rates down on any form of income that she has. and now they can't quite completely guarantee it for her. so what is she in this for, because she ain't with them -- >> it is an interesting cut-off date, january 13th, as ohs forred to any other years. i view the republican party as not the only divide between the rockefellers, and the conservatives. i think the moderate wing is basically known existent now, it is the conservatives who have pragmatic instincts, and i think they actually account for the majority of the republicans in the house. but they have subordinated those instin instincts, the growth, they can grab up all the dollars, steer it into the houses in the country. they are defined by the whack jobs, they basically define conservativism as sort of an insurgents, basically means conservativism now is basically defined as i oppose obama and any and all compromise. the power is there because they're intim dating. >> and some are actually fundraising over the

joins us and steve liesman, our senior economics reporter. you worried, what are you thinking here? >> you know the problem is we're already starting to see the consequences and specifically we saw that in the quarters leading up to the fiscal cliff discussion, and really this is just another reminder, another round reminding the american people and the world just how much of an imbalance this u.s. u.s. economy has become with out-of-control government spending and removing any incentive for businesses to invest in the u.s. economy. these are different conversations. when we talk about the government shutdown as a result of breaching the cliff, this is on obligations already made, dollars already spent. the conversation that we need to have or include here is reining in future spending which is what the republicans are trying to do at this point. >> what do you think, steve? have we already seen damage to the economy with all this uncertainty and questions surrounding the debt ceiling and the fiscal cliff, or is there a point that you believe the debt ceiling fight damages the econ
fed treasury and others presented their points. robert steve miller said the board fulfilled its fiduciary duty and the board reject it had entirely meaning it won't pursue the claims on its own or allowing greenberg international to pursue the claims in aidentifying's name. the ceo from 1967 until 2005, greenberg's long criticized the government's handling of aig during the financial crisis. his term filed the suit on behalf of other aig shareholders, the suit claiming, among other things, the firm's investors weren't properly compensated for the 80% stake the company took as collateral for the rescue packaged back in 2008. calls for clarification on the decision were not delivered. back to you. >> joining me right now in an exclusive interview, ceo benmosche. thanks for joining us. >> thank you, maria. >> very important time for the company and shareholders are out there watching this. first off i've got to say reading the court of public opinion, lots of headlines. now we've got a lawsuit against the government. the government bailed out this company. why did you even look at

? joining us now is steve kornacki, host of "the cycle." steve, it's good to see you. empty threats? or are we in uncharted obstruction territory? >> i don't think it's uncharted yet. i'm curious to see how it plays out. i think in terms of the republicans unifying in opposition, it's more likely in the case of hagel than lew, but we'll see how that plays out. i don't pick up yet in either case on the threat of what could kill either of these nominations that would be a filibuster there is a sense in hagel, even if he had all the republicans, all 45 of them say they are against him, there will be still be up or down. so maybe 55-45, maybe one democrat will peel off. the longer term threat here is this. what we've already experienced in the last four years is that the republicans in some very sort of troubling ways have changed the behavior enormous for congressional parties. you look at how they have treated the debt ceiling. they tried to claim that as a legitimate bargaining tool. you look what the senate republicans have done with the filibuster, taking extremes we have not seen
plan. steve liesman is here on what you are hearing. how concerned are they? >> there is concern and it takes two forms, sue. two separate fault lines that developed over the fed. you are -- well, that the easy one. the economy meeting what we call the substantial improvement in labor market quicker than others do. they are worried about substantial group in the balance sheet and adjusting it once they stave off inflation. here is what they said about three different folks with the fed. another group a few others say we need considerable policy. that is qe. but they frnt telling us how long it gez on for. this other group called several others that say it is appropriate to slow or stop purchases well before the end of 2013. they site concerns about financial stability or the size of the balance sheet. here is what i understood to be some of those concerns. big balance sheet obviously could lead to inflation. they could be at a loss or make payments to the bank. as interest rates go up, principal gez down. payment to banks would come from interest on reserve in order to sequester
. periodically they've developed what steve jobs used to say is, not what you want in the sense that, well, i'm looking for a better -- but something you never thought about that you suddenly just can't believe you can't live without. i think they've got to come up with something. they've got to come up with something that you can't live without that you don't know about. >> and they'll be able to do that without steve jobs? not just embracing something, but pushing the people behind it to actually make it a reality? >> tim cook, according to the interview, with steve jobs, not a product guy. but there are product guys there. this was not a one-man company. >> no, it wasn't. >> henry ford was not the only person at ford. but ford did change rather dramatically. is that the right analog? i struggle on apple every day, because the data points are not so great. >> they're not. as a consumer, who uses apple products, we want to love the stock, but that's not necessarily the case. >> i love the ecosystem so much. i was downloading this apple ecosystem from itunes. but it's not a rain forest, and w
could that impact the man who is now nominated to succeed tim geithner? steve, good morning. >> thanks, carl. first of all, just to what you were talking about earlier, we understand geithner's going to hang out until january 25th in the treasury, giving jack lew to confirm and i guess perfect his signature. let's see what we've learned, what does he leave for jack lew. he got the stress test done. actually, that's not correct there. let's move away from that. what we're talking about here is the -- let me go to my notes. the stimulus was done -- but sustained growth was not. frank dod basel iii was not done. aig also done. what is the geithner model? what is the geithner doctrine? i think you can say like this, overwhelming government force when it's clear it's needed. b in a crisis, spend, regulate and guarantee and do it with conviction. let's talk about one of the things left over from the geithner years, which is going to be the issue of debt and deficit. i think you would say there was some accomplishment when it came to getting some of these deals in place. but ultimately, he pr
of virgin atlantic. he's going to assume that job as of february 1st. current ceo steve ridgeway is retiring after 11 years on the job. >> let's welcome our two guest hosts who will be with us for the next two hours. first up we have senator ron johnson who is a member of the commerce and budget committees. also john allison, former bb&t ceo, also president of cato. welcome to the both of you. we have a lot to discuss with you. first we want to get to some of the things we're going to be talking about over the next two hours. guys, we have you here because we have some serious issues. things that are facing our nation and i know you both have some very serious thoughts about them. >> true. >> senator, you brought some cups that i think lay out some of your concerns. >> listen, what i like to talk about, obviously, is how do you start decreasing the level of uncertainty, bring certainly back to this economy, you know, restore confidence so we can get our economy growing again which is the primary, that's the best way to solving our fiscal situation. i think the other problem we've got to solv
school teachers. >>> congressman steve palazzo wanted aid when his district was ravaged by hurricane katrina, yet voted down sandy aid. he took a hypocritical tour of sandy damage today. >>> congress has hit a new low. >> say ah! >> ah. >> say ah! >> ah. >> even root canals are more popular. bob shrum and howard fineman are here to assess the damages. on the heels of the horrific massacre in newtown, connecticut, something needs to change. here is one reason why. two years ago today, a gunman opened fire in tucson, arizona, in a parking lot. he shot 19 people, including congresswoman gabrielle giffords with a gun that carries 33 rounds and a magazine of ammunition. six people died, including one child. the mother of that child now has a strong message for our elected leaders in washington. >> 20 heartbroken families lost a child in the sandy hook school shooting. i know how much it hurts. my 9-year-old daughter was murdered in the tucson shooting. i have one question for our political leaders. when will you find the courage to stand up to the gun lobby? whose child has to die next? t
and as advocated taking force off the table when dealing with iran. steve hayes in the weekly standard wrote nothing something in his blog this week, which i will put on the screen. , which will put on the screen. how would he advise this president on how to overcome the threat? >> first of all, i don't think that is a correct assessment. chuck hagel said nothing is off the table but one of the things he believes in is prospects for negotiation. we have been ready to negotiate under the right set of circumstances with iran for the last several years with our friends and allies so, force is the table but i'm glad we have people like the president and like chuck hagel who will be very careful when you start throwing around the terms -- >> he says it's not feasible. do you agree it is not feasible. >> what is the not feasible? >> military option? >>> military option is always feasible, you tell me what the option is. are we going to blow up tehran or go after facilities that might be well protected or hidden? and i think bob gates, the previous secretary of defense, who pointed out the difficul
hostile to media. and it works for them because they had enough innovation to get away with it. >> steve jobs was terrific with marketing but lousy with puerto rico. they refused to say how ill he was or what he had. he was the ceo. that was material information. he stayed alive with cancer long enough to build up his successor and build strength so when he died the stock did not go down. john: occasionally bad news can be good for business. like the tragic killing of trayvon martin may have helped skittles. he only had a bag of skittles that was the scene of the protest that followed. >> marching with signs and skittles in honor of trayvon martin rallying wearing a hoodies and carrying skittles. john: skittles said they will not commented its import -- inappropriate to get involved. >> our condolences go out for all involved but we will not exploit this for commercial purposes. by saying that is precisely the way to do it. >> that is an example where a company over thinking that puerto rico gets in the way of word-of-mouth. there is no more powerful thing than people talking to other pe
we have found a way it be able to run automobiles with water, that was the hope of steve jobs. they run on water and we've got that in q2. i'm taking numbers down. that's where we are right now, the mind-set of apple is so horrible, that i feel like taking a big bag of macintoshs and smashing them. >> if this story had come out a year ago, it would have been seen as leading a way in the emerging market play. this is exactly what they needed to do. >> 40 billion more apps, china taking over the world, nokia destroyed. now it's like, a new phone, you know, wow. >> the context is a different context this year than a year ago. you look at the third-quarter share loss. 14.6% down from 23% a year ago. you look at samsung's growth, and samsung at 31% of worldwide shipments, from 8.8%. so we're seeing these two sort of cross paths here with samsung on the upswing, samsung yesterday reporting a record year, and apple on the down side. >> how long is tim cook going to subsidize its biggest enemy, samsung, and not go to taiwan semiconductors? do something about this south korean invasion
. but it is entirely possible that the house of representatives will approve a bill by representative steve stockman to do away with the gun-free school zones. >> and you would be happy with that? >> you are a good guesser yes, sir. >> where are they going to put them? >> well, when people carry a concealed firearm one doesn't know for sure and the element of surprise remains with the person concealed. which means that somebody thinking of doing something horrible doesn't know which person or persons might be able to arrest him. to stop him, and that is why our jurisdictions that have easy access to concealed carry firearms enjoy lower murder rates than say the gun control mecca of chicago, which does better than one murder a day. >> you are a very experienced man in your field. you have run your operation for a long time and people take you you are a leading member in the gun rights lobby. i'm going to give you one more chance before we finish to say how many gun murders you believed were in england in 2011. >> more important than the number of murders, and it doesn't matter how a murder is committ
. a little secret, though. steve and the family love "the five" the best. good boy. robert? >> bob: this is a proud day and sad day for me. my son alex is on his way to college now. he is going to rollins college in florida, which is eric's alma mater. i will tell you this. he spent the fall semester doing golf tournaments. that is he and his sister messing around at thanksgiving, christmas i guess. but i will tell you one thing for all of you parents out there. there are moments in your child's life where you stay close to them whenbe you can. because when you hear that old adage about time goes by so quickly. honestly, it feels like it was yesterday i put him if his first little league
've now waited sech times longer than the victims of katrina waited for federal aid. >> above felix. steve sweeney, a democrat, blasted christie recently saying -- i guess he prayed a lot and got lucky a storm came. i know you apologized for that comment, but do you stand by your sentiment that the governor has been using the storm for his own gain? >> not for political gain, but to hide his record in new jersey. he said i'm going to wipe the slate clean now because of the storm. before the storm hit, we had 9.6% unemployment. we had the second highest foreclosure rate in the nation behind florida. our poverty rate has increased 3%. you don't get to wipe the slate clean, governor and quite honestly, if this is your jobs package, it's not a good jobs package. the governor wants to paint a different state than what's going on. >> one thing i have to ask you about this is post crisis bumps happen. as distasteful as it may be, they do happen. it happened to rudy giuliani after 9/11 and president bush. to president obama after superstorm sandy, too. maybe the reality of it is good leaders shine
. therefore, the outlook for qe is steve liesman. who we should note, of course, was hobnobbing with a lot of economists last week. >> simon, thanks. what i've been able to figure out is there are actually two separate fault lines that have developed over at the fed over how much quantitative easing to do this year. the first one is the easy one. some officials seeing the economy meeting the labor market before others. and look at this chart of the fed unemployment rate forecast for 2013. it shows those divisions really not that extreme. pretty solid majority. 16 of 19 members. they see the unemployment remain above 7.4% this year. that's probably enough to just fight qe for the full year. the more complicated split is among those who are worried about growth in the balance sheet and the fallout from trying to adjust it once the economy picks up. let's take a look at what the minutes said. a few members of the fed are in favor of asset purchases to the end of 2013. a few others, they would like to see considerable policy accommodation, but no specific time frame or total on the amount. it'

economics reporter steve liesman who joins us a little background. you going to give us a little drama, a little -- >> yeah, there seem to be at least two separate fault lines, andrew, at the fed over how much quantitative easing to do this year. the first one is the easy one. that's over the economic outlook. some officials see the economy meeting that test of substantial improvement in the labor market earlier than others do. that's the easy one. the more complicated split is among those who may or may not see the economy improving, but they're worried about growth in the balance sheet. i want to give you, from the minutes, the divisions at the fed. a few members of the fed say asset purchases are warranted until the end of 2013. a few others, we need considerable policy accommodation but give no specific time frame or total. they're probably the ones who are more oriented towards substantial improvement in the labor market. it's this last group that seems to be the new group. others, several others, they say it's appropriate to slow or to stop purchases well before the end of 2013,
we talked about 2007, people like steve king were at the forefront of stopping this, and we're going to start hearing from them again. we'll see if there's enough republicans to overwhelm them. an immigration bill would be something like the fiscal cliff passing with mostly democratic votes in the house. how many times can john boehner do in a? >> how many times will john boehner allow that to happen? >> right. >> also, dave, we have something that maybe you noticed as well on friday, our paychecks, right. hopefully we got our paychecks, and americans are starting to feel that pinch from that payroll tax holiday going away, and the president had said, you know, earlier on during the fiscal cliff deal and as the negotiations were going on that taxes would not go up for americans. what happened then is what a lot of people are asking at the moment? >> there was just a strange agreement between the democrats and the republicans to hold hands and jump off the cliff on this issue that we didn't really see coming because no one talked about it. this was an idea that got approved in the 201
as former boss steve jobs. we don't now how the holiday turned out for jcpenney. one person we spoke to is very happy with how his merchandise performed at jcpenney. >> we had a stellar performance in izod at jcpenney during the holiday season. great sell throughs. we beat our plans particularly for the month of december. so we really feel very good about how that has all come together, how izod has performed at jcpenney. we love the way they look, the way the brand is presented. and the margins have been outstanding. >> no shares of online only amazon hitting record highs. in tandem today with the heavy conference connecting with the consumer on multiple screens and platforms. a number expected to release their holiday sales numbers this week. many of which invested heavily in their online department. retail investment bank president collin welch told me today he thinks many of these retailers are better off acquiring technology companies and companies that already have this expertise than building them from the ground up. >> thanks very much. >>> earning season kicks off tomorrow.
and your readers, a piece for "atlantic monthly," go on the atlantic site, steve wrote a great piece from a credible perspective about senator hagel's relationship with the lgbt community. we will have a chance in senate hearings for on senator hagel to address this head on. i suspect maybe he is second only to rg3 this morning in terms of washington's bandwidth. i expect they will be well attended and highly viewed. >> not bad company to be in. a quick question on iran. that's a whole other category and lots of questions. if you look, a long record of opposing sanctions on iran. look at what the president has done, he has aggressively and increasingly ramped up sanctions on iran. seems completely contradict trooe ry on that front. >> he has a report of opposing unilateral sanctions on iran. he was supportive of multilateral sanctions on iran. they are, woulding to some affect. he is opposed to unilateral sanctions, because is he very clear on the threat that iran poses, and the danger iran poses, but he doesn't think unilateral sanctions are effective. he thinks they isolate the united s
